Forum: feature_films Subject: Is Delta Force Commando PD?

I recently obtained a copy of Delta Force Commando (some obscure 1980s sub-B Italian movie), I wanted to post here. According to some limited research I've done I believe it's in the public domain, but can anyone confirm difinitively? Thanks.

Please don't upload the film. It's copyright has probably been restored either under the Berne or GATT.

It used to be the case in the U.S, that if a foreign work wasn't registered with the U.S. Copyright Office, that work would be considered public domain. That is why many foreign works were distributed and available from cheapy VHS houses in the 1980s. However changes in international copyright laws in the 1990s have pulled many of these films from public domain.

yes! this is the film. Okay the user reviews basically say it stinks... I liked the "it's so bad it's good" cheese factor. Once it's been confirmed it's in the PD, if there's any interest, I can attempt an upload.

i learned that every movie made after 1975 is hardly in the public domain
but that can be wrong
